Abstract

Youth development policy was developed to serve the socio-economic needs of young people while also promoting the global development agenda. Various initiatives were conducted to execute the youth development policy, even though the implementation didn’t bring major change, and the majority of young people are dissatisfied with the policy outcome. Different factors determine the outcome of youth policy implementation, This study is intended to investigate the extent to which different factors determine the performance of youth policy implementation and evaluate the association between factors and performance in Bahir Dar City, Ethiopia. The empirical investigation was based on a concurrent nested research design. The research found that rationality of the policy, management, bureaucratic, political, organizational, and inter-organizational coordination, adequate budget and financial management, and involvement of policy stakeholders were positively correlated with the performance of youth policy implementation. However, management, bureaucratic, and political factors made insignificant contributions to the association. The recommendations in this study can assist policymakers and practitioners in boosting the implementation of youth policy in Ethiopia and other developing countries, as well as contribute to the existing literature on the topic.
